Very good question....To be or not to be Ebooks or regular books? LOL I know that their are a lot of people who despise the fact that technology is slowly and quickly replacing things....But as anything you will always have your pros and cons.....I think as far as children go(or our younger generation)....Parents would like for their child to get up on a Saturday afternoon and go to their local library and check out a couple of books....Their learning responsibility about taking care of their card(not losing it), making sure they return their books on time(To avoid late fees, challenge themselves(learning new words and things), and completion(finishing a book)....But as nice as that may seem today most kids wanna sleep in on a saturday....and when they do get up check their cell phones(text messages,voicemail,etc), check myspace and sum can do both on their phones.....go to the mall...With technoology rapidly growing you can sit in your but all day and have gotten so much done without wasting gas....You can shop,order food,watch a movie, pay your bills.....But at the same time with ebooks you can save documents and books....As with a regular book it can be thrown away or given to a friend to just borrow that you never see again....With ebooks you always have your own copy....Honestly I dont really know....I personally switch between the two...I think its great that you have the option of both....Because everybody likes something different....You can't go wrong with being given a choice....

I'm an avid reader of traditional books and I'm saddened by the fact that more and more people are shifting to ebooks rather than the traditional books. I hate to think that time will come when there are no books around to read except ebooks.

It might. It wouldn't be such a horrible thing if you ask me. I personally prefer traditional books most definitely. However, ebooks are more affordable and use far less resources and energy. It would be quite a wonderful thing if this happened. The only downside I could see occuring is bootlegging. We would see the same series of events that happened with music and illegal downloading.

I don't think that technology will eliminate books in the near future. I think it will take a long, long time before that happens. Personally, I prefer to hold a book, turn the pages, feel its weight in my hands. Still, I'm not opposed to reading an e-book, especially if its a new author whose publisher is not ready to gamble on her yet getting her work on print. But maybe with purchasing some of their e-books they will progressed to actual books. I have to admit, as a voracious reader, I take my books in any format. I have a book in my purse, an e-book on my laptop, and an audiobook in my car...whatever works as long as I continue to enjoy the works of my favorite authors.

I dont think that e-books will replace the traditional books. Though this is true that they are becoming popular increasingly and can be accessed easily on the net too but reading from an e-book gets stressful for eyes, moreover it takes away the feel of reading and the fun of flipping through the pages. As in my opinion I don't like reading e-books.
